they will pose a threat. the obama administration to say this was a terrorist attack immediately. are they doing a good job handling this one? >> it is too early to tell. this is a difficult one. i'm not going to say that. when you have a group like this that is clearly well-organized, i think it was pre-planned, that had this much success with this many hostages. this is as hard a problem as it gets on the ground to unwind. the outcomes of these are not always great. that said, what we don't have is an overarching policy. this is what many of us have been talking about. mali is the first victim of libya, because of the weapon cashes that were raided and the inability of anyone to stop those weapons and people. you had tune you had tu nearbyians coming down. you have all of this converging together. it makes it a very, have he dangerous recipe. that's why you can't just handle mali or benghazi. you have to have an overarching plan that puts pressure on these groups. you can't just fire a few missiles and pack up and go home and hope for the best. it is not going to work. this is a can of worms.

their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain
she'l he'll lack. and she did play a role as the obama administration would assert in restoring the american image, but i think there will be more points of continuity than discontinuity. >> rose: how do you assess her four years? >> >> well, i think she was good at restoring the american image. i think she trafd a lot. she went to 112 countries. i think she had some success in asia. but i don't think she or the obama administration has many notable diplomatic accomplishiments. the syria problem is-- seemed. the middle east situation seems pretty much stalled out. can. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor, and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much at played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacteri

. erin? >> all right, thanks very much to you, mary. >>> "outfront" next, the obama administration very concerned about the terror threat in northern africa, warning americans to stay away. >>> and later, facebook's ceo likes chris christie. i know where those two met. will the other tech leaders throw their support behind the gop? >>> welcome back to the second half of "outfront." we start with stories where we focus on reporting from the front lines. we begin with north korea, which warns it plans to carry out a nuclear test that targets the united states, the supposed sworn enemy of the korean people. in the u.s., meanwhile, defense secretary leon panetta says he's very concerned with north korea's continuing provocative behavior, but says that the u.s. is fully prepared to deal with. gordon chang, though, the author of "nuclear showdown: north korea takes on the world" says panetta's remarks are refreshingly candid, but says we should be paying attention, because north korea's words are an escalation in the rhetoric, and this time he thinks north korea has the capability to actually
. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the

end of the campaign and republicans keep making accusations against the obama administration, they tried to paint a positive picture of the decimation of al qaeda for political reasons rather than sharing the specific information that they had. on one of those five sunday talk shows you were filling in and you had susan rice appear before your show. do you remember how she responded? this was five days after the attack in benghazi. >> well, first of all, i remember we were all requesting secretary of state hillary clinton because it was under her purview just in terms of booking but that's not who the white house put out. the white house controls they. they control this process of sunday shows and guests with an iron hand. >> were you surprised when susan rice was the designee? >> yes, because as president obama said later, she really had nothing to do with security decisions in benghazi or libya at large. she's the ambassador to the united nations. i didn't know what she was doing there other than that she was a high level and came armed at that point that this was not the r

's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent inve
to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on. first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee, through the times that he served with such distinction as chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability review board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people and posts around the world. now, working together, we've achieved a great deal, but the state department and usaid have a lot of unfinished business from afghanistan to nonproliferation to climate change to so much. we need
. but outside afghanistan, the obama administration has been hesitant to put more boots on the ground. so they'll continue to rely heavily on drones. >> predators and reapers are the signature weapon of the war against al qaeda. >> reporter: president bush launched the first wave of drone strikes, mostly targeting al qaeda leaders in pakistan. then president obama took office and increased the number of targets. he expanded the program into yemen, where al qaeda was planning attacks on the u.s. and sboob lawless somalia. the pentagon and cia have been working together in those areas. over the next four year, officials want to specifically grow the partnership between intel and special operations forces. >> it is central to our ability to solve our most pressing national security challenges. >> reporter: perhaps the most pressing, a cyber attack that instruments communication, transportation and vital services across multiple states. >> these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbor. an attack that would cause physical destruction and the loss of life. >> reporter: it may not even be phys
the obama administration is taking to beef up security at u.s. facilities worldwide. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. heather: doug mckelway is live for us on capitol hill with the very latest. doug, we're learning new details seems moment by moment. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, most recent thing, senator rand paul absolutely skewering the secretary of state moments ago calling the attack on benghazi the worst since 9/11. he said he would have removed the secretary of state from her post because of that. among other new revelations she was asked directly if she was made aware of requests by ambassador stevens and others for heightened security in benghazi in light of 30 previous security threats and two specific attacks? here was her response. >> first, let's start on the night of september 11th itself and those difficult early days. i directed our response from the state department, stayed in close contact with of

attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to

already increased the debt limit over $5 trillion in the obama administration, almost a 50% inkeys in the debt limit. let me also say we have had many, several, temporary short-term increases in the debt limit before there's been a more permanent long-term increase in 1987, 1990, 1996. it is not unprecedented, the action we're going to be taking today. with that, i yield two minutes to the distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from washington state, mr. reichert. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. reichert: thank you, mr. speaker. let me see if i can simplify this a little bit. so there's three branches of government. two branches of the government have responsibility for the budget. and there's three piece to those two branches. the white house is one, the administration needs to produce a budget. the house republicans need to produce a budget. the senate democrats need to produce a budget. for the system to work. well, the president produced his budget. even though we may not agree with it on this side of the ai
